Pre-Cycling B1 Class

You also need to think about pre-cycling .

















This means looking at a product to see if it is recyclable . If it isn't, don't buy it! Also buy products that have been recycled . The more demand there is for recycled goods ,the more demand there will be for recyclable products.

RECYCLING!!! ENVIRONMENT LEVEL B1 CLASS

Image
Recycling involves taking materials from things that are no longer wanted or needed and using them to make new items.









                                                       *`RECYCLING'*

Even before the modern environment movement began  in the 1970s, recycling had existed for thousands  for years.                                                   
Recycling movement.

 Before the industrial age,people couldn't make goods  quickly and cheaply,so nearly everyone recycled items on a daily basis.
~INDUSTRIAL AGE~

In times of war, metal objects , like coins , jewellery and statues, were melted down to make weapons.

Learner Motivation

Image
It is highly true that every time a professional teacher enters the classrrom the VERY FIRST THING  they are obliged to do is to set all the lesson`s objectives in the classroom ,on a very special place, i.e. top up right, and as these ones are carried out during lesson progression, they should be ticked off; in this way, learner`s attention  and motivation are  not distracted and lesson objectives are clearly set out and executed.
Now, as for young learners, a box wiith a point scored for each time they actively participate in the teaching procedure, maintain their motivation high  and keep discipline to high standards, is highly recommended. Also, an asessment form with stickers placed on each square, every time ,task performance and language learning is achieved, should be applied constantly. It is followed up by an award of a diploma demonstrating task achievement as well as a small gift as a simple token of appreciation for the efforts made into progressing to language learning. A…

LEA Approach

The LEA (Language Experience Approach) in the service of grammar - Possessive ('s) - Whose? Submitted by Paraskevi Andre... on 20 February, 2010 - 22:25 Tip 1: Idea: If you seek ways os practising the Possessive (Whose- `s) with young learners plus revising vocabulary items previously taught, then, how about setting up an open air market with flashcards/ realia in the classroom??? Ss will go around , asking different greengrocers whether the products that are up for sale are theirs (Whose are these juicy oranges??? ) -- the students playing part of the vendors will reply to customers/ students (they`re George`s) ; the customers/ Ss will proceed to ask: (Oh, they look delicious..how much are they?) Well, a lively way to practise grammar using an LEA approach..
Tip 2: Idea: Use projects to consolidate the lesson centred around the Lost Atlantis in the wonderful coursebook series by Herbert Puchta (More 2) ...ask from teenage Ss to draw the type of dinosaur that existed in that prehstoric …

New Vocabulary for young learners

New vocabulary for young learners Submitted by Paraskevi Andre... on 24 January, 2010 - 14:06 Dear fellow teachers You are all familiar with the benefits of playing games in the ESOL classroom; they contribute to our young learners` intelligence , they form our students` character , they make them all round learners and, on top of all, they offer loads of entertainment, joy, rival competition and fun!!!! Some of them are the so-called "Hide-and-Seek" and "Broken Telephone"...I use "broken telephone" when I first use unknown vocabulary in the form of flashcards and I make them practise it by whispering the word to one another`s ears and award them points for each correct answer!!! (rule not to be violated) is the one of not repeating it more than one time ..to create an element of suspense in the ESOL classroom... As for the "Hide-and-Seek" variation, I make students assume the roles of flashcards (Mary will take on the role of "stand up", S…

ElemeUpgrading language skills via films and drama stories used for ntary Students

ElemeUpgrading language skills via films and drama stories used forntary Students Submitted by Paraskevi Andre... on 7 March, 2010 - 12:31 Movies: 1. Set the scene
With the audio off, Ss try to set the scene of the clip (characters and plot), based on visual cues and body language expressions. Learners can get a lot of non-verbal cues to understand the conversation and predict the plot.Shortly afterwards, with the audio on, they`ll confirm their correct guesses.
2. Arrange the dialogue
T prepares in text format the dialogue in advance (before previewing), and Ss are invited to reorder it; later, they watch it with subtitles to check the arrnagement of the dialogues.
3. Be a critic
Based on the suitability of its content , students are requested to criticise on the plot and present arguments for and against its storyline.
Many thanks go to B. Anatham (Institute of Technology and Science, India) and IATEFL Voices  March-April Issue 213 (newsletter) for their invaluable articles and ideas give…
